Careers at Microsoft

 
#1 Careers at Microsoft
01/09/2011 12:17

Tony Restell (Top-Consultant.com)

With the publication of The Definitive Guide to UK Consulting Firms (see: http://news.top-consultant.com/guide_to_consulting_firms.aspx), we have amassed company profiles for 189 consulting employers. As many of the discussions started on the forum revolve around what it is like to work at different firms, we thought we'd create anchor threads for the firms we have profiles for, to create a place where readers can share additional information about careers at each of these firms - in this case careers at Microsoft.

Below is copied the profile information about Microsoft. If you know of other sources of information about careers at Microsoft, or can provide your own insights of working or interviewing there, or can add anything else constructive for people searching the site for information about them - please reply to this thread and add your input. We'll roll this out to lots of consulting employers over the coming weeks and hopefully can create a great repository of information about consulting employers like Microsoft.
